Like most of the world right now, we’re trying to put the extra time we have to good use.
There’s the living room gym, the bedroom yoga classes and even that new spa that’s just opened in your bathroom - but the absolute highlight of these days spent in lockdown has to be the daily run. A chance to stretch your restless legs and fill your lungs with some well needed fresh air.
With that in mind, we’ve collated our runner’s essentials, courtesy of a Deru favourite Satisfy Running. Everything a runner needs from your sweating head to blistering toe.
Of course, any pair of shorts can be taken on a run - but when you’re averaging over 5km a day, having the right pair of shorts is the difference between a trudging slog and a springy PB.
These are the right pair of shorts, made with tech-silk fabric they’re lightweight, durable, fast-drying, moisture-controlling, and even chafe eliminating. Surprisingly for their size there's a six sweatproof pocket system for your phone, your credit card, your keys, up to 6 gels and they of course offer outstanding freedom of movement.
Satisfy take an essentialist approach to design, each element and feature only adding to the functionality of the apparel and these super-lightweight running t-shirts are no different. Made with ultra-high-functioning Deltapeak™ material designed for a perfect balance between comfort and sports use. The long sleeve variant featuring Satisfy’s very own Justice™ fabric for maximum airflow and UV protection.
Made from lightweight, water & wind repellent, aluminium-charged, ripstop fabric from Switzerland, this windbreaker is perfect for being safe and seen across the city on those cooler nighttime runs. The jacket also has 2 front pockets and 3 internal organisers for your valuables, as well as a sleeve pocket that converts into a small self-packing drawstring bag to be taken anywhere.
Made with a merino wool and nylon blend, these hand tie-dyed dedicated running socks offer double padding for high impact cushioning as well as incorporating a mesh panelling for cooling, odour control and quick-drying technology.
And finally, to cap it all off, this dynamic running hat with splatter design. The 4-way stretch offers ultimate comfort while keeping the sun out of your eyes, your head dry from the rain and your hair in one place.
